Georgia Cyclone was still a fun coaster when I rode it last year and had amazing airtime in the back, but this definitely looks like a major upgrade. It's like when Six Flags Discovery Kingdom closed Roar. Yes Roar was still a pretty good ride, but by all accounts Joker is a significantly better coaster.

I absolutely love that first turnaround. I saw a similar element in Planet Coaster when I got the game and was hoping to see it in real life someday. I love how they were able to use that turnaround to add the barrel roll drop since it allowed the ride to have a standard first drop, which is the best part of an RMC in my opinion. The ride does seem short on track length, but it certainly packs a lot into that time frame.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Balder, Voyage
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Shambhala
Top 5 Parks- Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland, Phantasialand, Knoebels

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

As a sucker for blue I LOVE the rail color and yes that first inversion looks ridiculous. So stoked for this, and that my sister lives nearby. Definitely making a visit in 2018. Love this park! Congrats to the locals!

To echo some other comments, I absolutely love the blue rails! I also really like how they’ve preserved the first drop while giving us something that looks messed up in all the best ways immediately after. It would be easy to complain about the length, but I’m thrilled we’re finally getting an RMC and I’m hopeful it will tear through its course.

I love donkeys more than me.

Hell yes! I don't care that it's a little shorter than most of the other RMCs. I'm just stoked to finally have one only 20 minutes from me! I love the blue track as it's an unique color on these RMCs outside of Twisted Collosus, and it'll pop when you see it coming up to the park. Everything just looks so amazing! With Twisted Cyclone, Mind Bender, and Goliath as the main trio, I think the park has a very strong coaster line up now.

I really don’t see the length being too much of a problem. And trust me, I’m absolutely the first person to b*tch if I find something I don’t like about a ride. If the animation is to be believed, you’re still getting about 35 seconds of ride time, almost identical to Outlaw Run’s length, and 5 seconds longer than the Raptor clones. The ride will be going slower than the other RMC’s, so it won’t feel as short as the stats make it out to be. Plus, I really don’t see how much more they could’ve done with a ride this tiny. RMC did a great job with this ride.

Also, I love:
-The ride vehicles
-The track color
-The first two inversions
-The wave turn
-The fact that Over Georgia now has one of the best coaster collections in the world.

Um, you're losing 500 feet of track, not "half" a ride. Do some research before you post stupid comments like this. Thanks.

ps. We hate that you're a complainer, also.

They really do. I hoped so hard for this conversion after visiting (and hoped they'd go with blue rails even, pretty sure I posted that here forever ago!) But yeah this parks lineup is absolutely fu*king stacked.

RMC Cylone
a really good B&M hyper
a really really good, classic custom Schwarzkopf multi-looper,
the BEST Superman clone
a good Batman clone
the best B&M standup
a classic, really good out-and-back woodie
a really great 3-lift mine train
a really great unique drop tower
a really great classic dark ride
a really great modern dark ride
a refurbished classic Vekoma (yeah Im reaching with this)
a Skyscreamer
a great Gotham city
etc etc etc

I love this park so much.
